    More sellers will voluntary stop using escrow.com as the result. Even if they reside in "supported" country. Why bother if a large number of potential buyers cannot pay? The issue is not only that legitimate sellers from "fresh" banned countries (most notably ex-USSR, Panama, Pakistan) are no more able to sell through them. Another part of the story is that genuine buyers from banned countries are also excluded.

    It never was my primary escrow in terms of enduser sales, mostly used it for some bulk sales to another domainers...
    But Sedo escrow was always primary + Payoneer escrow in 3F range (when it was alive).

    So my country is banned or not - doesn't matter for me.
    I even closed my account there when they launched their mandatory ID uploads for all accounts.

    Regarding USSR...
    Forget this factor... Nobody consider it. 28 years elapsed.

    3% or 60 USD/EUR/GBP minimum (200 for some exotic TLDs).

    Although note that for now Sedo have eliminated the 60$ minimum.
    @Abdullah Abdullah if you scroll down at this link it shows long list of TLDs in that category. Any not listed are in the $200 minimum category.

    They eliminated it only for their regular marketplace sales.

    Yeah, this makes sense. Even if the seller trusts this particular service provider enough to upload the docs, it is far from obvious that all buyers will be happy to upload their ID just to purchase something online... saying nothing about extra docs (company registration certificate or whatever) if the buyer is a legal entity.

    Sedo charges 3% for escrow which is only 1.22% higher that Escrow.com charges (escrow.com calls it "consierge" which is by default offered by Sedo), I recommend to avoid escrow.com also because of their worthless outsource support which can not even proper speak on English) and use Sedo.com

    Or use Dan.com which charges 5% for external leads/sales.

    There is a little problem with the SEDO.
    I've tried to set up a deal using their escrow option twice but have no luck. No response at all.

    Next time I'll try to give them a call to get a confirmation they have received my request.
